Description

Classic drama based on the novel 'Washington Square' by Henry James and starring Montgomery Clift and Olivia de Havilland. Catherine Sloper (de Havilland) is a naive young woman and heiress to a considerable fortune, who is swept off her feet by the charming Morris Townsend (Clift) in 19th century New York. Against the wishes of her domineering father (Ralph Richardson), Catherine continues her romance. But is Morris the love of Catherine's life, or are his purposes more sinister, and is he merely after her fortune? Torn between her desire for Morris and her need to placate her father, Catherine is forced to make an agonising decision.

Also by William Wyler, Montgomery Clift and Olivia de Havilland
